A denim on denim outfit is often referred to as a “Canadian tuxedo,” and Reebok has brought a duo of full denim ‘fits to its famed Instapump Fury. Though the nickname may indicate the North, both of these shoes are Japan exclusives — and dressed with details inspired by hard-wearing selvedge denim.
“Night Navy” is the first colorway to the plate, and it’s done up in a rich navy blue tone. There’s also a “Core Black” pair inspired by black denim. Though the shades may be different, each pair’s overall construction and means of embellishment are quite similar. Uppers are built of rich denim, with the midfoot’s Pump bladder taking on a matte tone and leather used for the toe cap. Both of these pieces feature gold contrast stitching for a nod to the seams of denim jeans.
If you look at the heel tabs, you’ll see that they also lean fully into the shoe’s selvedge inspiration: they’re trimmed with white and secured by red threads, nodding to the self-edged construction of premium denim. Branding is handled by tonal Reebok hits on each shoe’s throat and heel plus monochromatic Pump stamps on each shoe’s fit system. Midsoles are kept tonal as well, split into two pieces by a stiff carbon fiber plate and loaded with DMX cushioning in the heel for comfort. Chalk-colored outsoles complete the look.
This duo of dashing denim takes on the Reebok Instapump Fury is available now via retailers like atmos. Each pair’s MSRP is set at ¥19,800 JPY (approximately $179 USD), inclusive of tax.
